We’re excited about our brand new e-book on filmmaking basics. The book walks a new filmmaker through the production process from story to marketing. Big emphasis on finding the right story, and on managing the production process.
A number of industry pros offer advice on story, casting, working with actors, sound and costume.
The e-book is for the new (or almost new) filmmaker ready to make a movie. A real film. A film to stand out from the mass of YouTube videos. The filmmaker has a story to tell. And is probably working on a limited or zero budget.
Includes info on equipment, and lots of resources. At 80 pages and 26,000 words, any new or emerging filmmaker will learn how to stand apart from the crowd.
Find it on Amazon Kindle
. readable on any PC or Mac.
